Sandvik Construction and Mining were host to 27 members from the Northern Ireland branch on the 4 September 2014 for their annual technical outing at Ballygawley, Co.Tyrone.
The factory in Ballygawley is now Sandvik’s centre of excellence for manufacturing mobile crushing and screening plant, where the range extends from the smaller 20t QE141 scalper to the larger 130t UH640 Cone Crusher and includes the world’s only tracked Doublescreens and patented Prisec™ impactor technology.
The site visit commenced with an introduction to Sandvik worldwide, company structure and the factory at Tullyvannon.
The branch was then given a tour of the factory where they were able to view the assembly of several mobile crushing and screening units in progress.
At the end of the factory tour Sandvik had arranged an extensive display of new units for the branch to inspect at close hand with factory personnel on hand to assist and to answer questions any visitors had.
The Branch express their thanks to Kevin Dooley, Area Sales Representative for Sandvik and his colleagues for their time given to host the members and for the excellent lunch provided by the on-site staff at the factory.
